"I have started taking Acetyl L-Carnitine HCI as part of a regimen for the purpose of enhancing my short term memory. But, since I have only been on ALC for just a couple of weeks, I have not experienced any changes yet, but normally give any new supplement two to three months before evaluating its effectiveness. I am sure it will have a benefit, but it is too soon to tell. As always, Vitacost is my first place to shop for outstanding quality of ingredients, price and delivery."
"Acetyl L-Carnitine was something I have not used before and I thought I would give it a try. Within a week of taking this , I noticed a change in my energy level, like there was more oxygen going to my brain. I felt wonderful and felt energized even after a full day of housework and exercise in my home gym. I wasn't expecting this and certainly not so soon. I thought it would just be good for me all the way around and that I wouldn't notice the benefits. I thought it would just quietly help me feel better. Boy what a surprise. I would tell anyone to try this. Healthred"
"I take several supplements that my doctor recommends. There is no way I can tell honestly what works and does no good. I can not tell if this or any other supplements helps because I take 6 or 7 others each day."
"I try different brands for different supplements all the time (unless I know when its it, its it) I pay very close attention to what my body is telling me, this is one product that works very well with me! I take it in the morning before I eat along with other amino acids (they work well together). It makes a difference when taking them consistantly and with other ones. I never take one amino by its self, I believe they dont work as well."
"I seemed to understand things even more clearly with this Carnitine-seems like I zoomed through a book on Investing like it was nothing. I'm only in the mid-30's and I'm not yet demented -but I feel like it sometimes, hectic as life is. I don't know if I need this, but since it works well with Alpha Lipoic Acid, I decided to get both."
"I have been taking acetyl l-carnitine for years now and i noticed a difference when i first started taking it. I do wonder why you only take one of the NSI product a day while others call for 3 times a day?"
"The association between alpha limpoic acid and acetyl lcarnitine has been well established. I use 300mg of alpha lipoic acid and 500 mg of acetyl l carnitine. For cell structure and mitichondria life it has proven to be very positive and NSI has the best value on a superior product."
"I feel this is an excellent product. I would recommend this product for anyone who is serious about training and getting rid of unwanted fat. It is especially good for those that need to cut and define in a shorter period of time and will also provide some energy as an advantage. Many people take this product along with BCAAS to get that ripped look. enjoy!!!"
